Stage 1 Burn Ban Declared for Clark County

The Southwest Clean Air Agency (SWCAA) has issued a Stage 1 Burn Ban for Clark County effective now through Saturday, 14, 2012 at 1 pm. This is due to stagnant weather pattern forecasts and rising fine particle pollution levels. The use of all fireplaces and uncertified wood stoves and inserts and all outdoor burning is prohibited. If wood burning is your only adequate source of heat, you are exempt.

When the burn ban is lifted, the SWCAA has many tips on their website to burn wood more efficiently. See their following articles on their home page. "Burn Dry Seasoned Firewood & Get a Moisture Meter", "Clean Air Tips" and "Top 10 Cleaner Wood Burning Tips".
